These biscuits are a great way to talk about Jesus' death and resurrection with your children. My kids started making these with me at age 5.

How to Make Easter Tomb biscuits

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Spray a cookie sheet lightly with cooking spray.
  2. On waxed paper, press the rolls into flat circles. As your child is pounding the dough, remind them how Jesus was beaten by the soldiers who had arrested Him.
  3. Place a marshmallow in the center of each roll. The marshmallow represents Jesus, pure and white.
  4. Pinch the dough around the marshmallow, telling your child that the you are sealing Jesus (marshmallow) in your "tomb" (biscuit) just like the soldiers sealed Jesus' body in His tomb after He died.
  5. Roll the marshmallow-filled rolls into round balls.
  6. Brush each ball with butter. This wetness is like the tears of sorrow that Jesus' friends cried when He was gone.
  7. Mix the cinnamon and sugar together in a small bowl. This represents the dirt and the rocks at the tomb. Sprinkle each ball with the mixture of cinnamon and sugar.
  8. Let the rolls rise on your cookie sheet for 30-45 minutes. This waiting time is like Holy Saturday, when we are waiting in anticipation. Then bake them at 350 degrees for 15 minutes, until they are golden brown.
  9. Let them cool; serve warm (if served the next day you can microwave a few seconds). Just like the tomb on Easter Sunday, these rolls are empty! Jesus (the marshmallow) is gone :)
